Autoradiographic study of macromolecular synthesis in the fusion epithelium of the developing rat primary palate in vitro.

The facial processes involved in primary palate formation undergo epithelial fusion in a manner morphologically analogous to that observed during secondary palate formation. We have used whole embryo culture to analyze the synthesis of macromolecules (DNA, protein glycoprotein) in the primary palate, based on the incorporation of various labeled precursors… CONTINUE READING
